Condition: I would grade this banknote as a nice good or much better with all the details being well preserved. The note has several vertical folds and a horizontal fold. The folds are heavily creased and there are holes along the central vertical crease especially in the center where the horizontal and vertical crease meet due to excessive folding. The note has losses along the edges, light soiling, no major stains or additional pinholes. There are short tears along the edge which doe not reach the design. The corners have losses and rounding. The note has no graffiti and no pinholes beyond the holes mentioned above due to folding. The note still retains some of its stiffness as opposed to being limp. Despite the used condition of the note, its colors are still vivid with minimum fading. A great and rather rare note to add to your collection. Please see the scans for additional condition information.
